Since tomorrow will be Memorial Day here in the U.S., I thought it might be fitting to discuss superhero deaths that people may remember from when they first began reading comic books.
Back when I started reading comic books regularly, they weren't constantly killing off heroes left and right . . . superhero deaths were a little more meaningful.
When I first started reading Justice League of America, it was during the JLA/JSA crossover where they brought back The Seven Soldiers of Victory. That story revealed that Wing, the partner of the Crimson Avenger, had been killed trying to stop a menace to the world, and it also appeared the Red Tornado died at the end of issue 102.
(Turns out that he was alive again a few issues later . . . instead of being killed, he was just thrown into the Multiverse and landed severly injured on Earth-1.)
Towards the end of the 1970's, two other members of the JSA were killed off . . . the Earth-2 Batman
and Mister Terrific.
Anyone else care to share some early superhero deaths they remember from when they first started reading?
(And Happy Memorial Day . . . especially to anyone who served in the military or lost a loved one in a war.)
